MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. Three republics of the North Caucasus - Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan - have been named Russia’s most sober regions in a survey conducted by the country’s Civic Chamber.
These regions, with predominantly Muslim population, are followed by the two biggest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Russia’s most drinking regions are the Far East's Kamchatka, Magadan and Jewish autonomous region, and the Nenets autonomous region in western Siberia.
The survey is based on criteria including alcohol sales, death rates from alcohol poisoning and drunk driving.
